Ohio school shooting suspect's relatives testify

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — Relatives of an 18-year-old charged in a school shooting rampage that killed three Ohio students have testified they were unaware of taped surveillance of their conversations in a police interrogation room.

T.J. Lane's relatives testified Wednesday in Chardon on the defense bid to rule out the conversations as evidence at his murder trial next month.

The prosecution says relatives should have had no expectation of privacy while talking among themselves in a police interrogation room just after the shootings last February.

Investigators say Lane admitted shooting at students but couldn't say why. He faces up to life in prison without parole if convicted of the Chardon High School shootings.

The News-Herald in Willoughby (http://bit.ly/XL6u1T ) says Lane waved and smiled at his grandmother in court in a rare show of emotion.
